Rode Hall

By the time we’d had lunch on the boat, walked into the estate, and had an emergency cream tea, it was a bit late to go round both the house and the gardens as well, so the gardens it was.

However, here’s some pictures of the house as we wandered round…

Not sure if the blogging system will censor the above, as it appears to be a naked lady dancing in the flower bed for some reason.

There are wooded areas, a lake with heronry, a huge walled garden and so on. With the dry weather things were not always at their best but here’s some pictures from our wanderings.

And then, of course, there was the long walk back in the baking late afternoon sunshine. A thirsty day… beer was consumed.
